Skybox F5s doesnt work with HDMI

    I have just purchased a SKYBOX F5s. Had F5 model before that before it died. The new skybox does not show up on my LG LCD TV with HDMI but works fine with scart and phono leads. Does anybody know how to fix this or is there a setting that needs changing. The F5 I had previous worked fine with HDMI so I don't think it is the port on the TV.

    Thanks Guys

    1. try another hdmi cable
    2. there may be something wrong with the hdmi port on the box just send it back to who you bought it off.

    How can you tell a genuine from a clone?

    the clones for a start are normally cheaper. for example if you bought one of e-bay the minimum you would have to pay is £55.00.
    another way is to ask your supplier who produced the box it should be yojia technology
    some clones will not accept A.Js channel list (in facrt most of them)
    try and flash the original firmware from the site above on to your box

    In the System setup > TV system menu, what video resolution is it showing?
